Nxe5 Kxe5] How to win the Black queen in this position? Or, better to say, how to catch the queen? Let's see... First, White sacrifices the right pawn by moving it on e5 with check - Black has to accept the sacrifice and take the White pawn on e5. This can be done by the king or queen. If the king takes the pawn (see variation 1), the White knight will move on c4 to deliver check and fork on the queen to take it.
